La Société des Célebrations du 375e Anniversaire de Montréal's reply.
La Société des Célebrations du 375e Anniversaire de Montréal is the organization mandated to oversee the administration of all 375th-anniversary events.
They have cordially refused (in writing) to disclose the VIP lists and total costs.
La Société des Célebrations du 375e Anniversaire de Montréal claims that DEMOCRATIQUE.CA INC. did not properly formulate our access to information request. They believe that the laws in Québec surrounding access to documents and personal information held by public bodies do not apply in this case.
In short, the organization believes that they can refuse access to information with respect to how our taxpayer dollars are spent to administer the 375th Anniversary!!!
In our access to information request, (April 2017), we requested the total costs to the taxpayers of Montréal for the 375th-anniversary celebrations, including the lists of all VIP guests invited by our elected officials to 375th-anniversary celebration parties.
La Société des Célebrations du 375e Anniversaire de Montréal has also claimed that they will be publishing a full report of all activities related to the 375th Anniversary Celebration in due course. It is not clear what they plan to publish in this report, or when.
We expedited a very simple and straightforward request.
There should be no confusion as to what we are requesting and why.
We demand to know how our taxpayer dollars are being spent and who they are being spent on!!!
WE WILL DELIVER!!!
YOU HAVE OUR WORD!!!
